It works fine on SP1. I'd certainly recommend SP2 in all cases though -
nobody should really be using XP without it.

If you search the archives, you will find that this is typical of buggy
antivirus or firewall software. Do you have any such software installed
on your server?

It shouldn't be, it's most likely something else installed on that machine.

No. pg_hba tells which authentication method is used for which IPs. See

No, that clearly sets localhost to md5.
